Football fan, traveler, pizza lover and typography aficionado. Courtney studied graphic design at James Madison University in Virginia before following her calling to warmer weather out west. After defrosting for a few years in Los Angeles she took her love for design and building brands and created East + Sunset, Inc. in 2016. When she’s not behind the computer (which is where she is most of the time) you can find her at pilates, on the couch watching Netflix with a glass of wine, or planning the next big adventure!
Madeline Sideras is currently in the honeymoon phase of living her post college dream of living in LA! She moved to Los Angeles in 2018 after graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Visual Communication Design. She has a passion for social media, content creation, and minimalist design. She is also a model and enjoys connecting with photographers to create photos as a creative outlet. When she’s not working, she enjoys baking, exploring LA with her friends, and drinking way too much coffee.
Jack is our resident office manager. He’s not the best at filing but he does come in handy for mid-workday snuggles. He looks cute until you don’t pay your invoice. When he’s not sending faxes or organizing the books, he enjoys looking at birds in the window and chasing his toy mice.
Courtney and the team at East + Sunset have been part of our Inside Publications family now for several years. We've had the honor of working with Courtney on both a freelance project level and now as our Lead Designer. Truth is, we couldn't imagine producing our family of titles without her. Inside Publications consists of several titles; Inside Gymnastics magazine, Inside Cheerleading magazine, Cheer Biz News, Inside Dance magazine, Coach's Handbook, Coach's Resource Guide and launching in late 2020, Inside Action Sports magazine. Although our company has been publishing for nearly 20 years, it is Courtney's design vision and passion that has allowed our digital and print magazines to stand out from the pack. Her worth ethic, integrity, determination and drive brings an energy like nonother to our team! She has the personal touch of making our company feel as if we are her only client. Meanwhile, she's delivering impeccable work for so many others! It's her persistence and attention to deadlines that gives you the confidence that your project will not only hit it's mark, but will be her best work to date.
When working with graphic designers it is sometimes hard to communicate your vision. Courtney always “gets it” right away. You can count on her for great ideas and original designs. Her professionalism keeps me coming back as a loyal client.
Great work and fast turn around. Listens to client's needs and uses her creative skills to see ideas come to fruition. Great for graphic design/photography/web design.
I have had the pleasure of working with Courtney for the past several years. She is a creative, resourceful and talented graphic designer. She is very knowledgeable, responsive and pays attention to all details, big and small. She provides excellent customer service and delivers on time. I would highly recommend Courtney for any graphic design needs.
Whether it be an invitation or a brand logo, every project that Courtney has done has turned out better than I could have wished for. She is a pleasure to work with and is always a step ahead of making any vision come to life. I am forever grateful to have found such a gem of a designer. Namaste.
